We Are All In This Together – FDC Community Updated 03rd April

Offer of fresh food March area villages:

We have had an offer come in from a March based organisation who is already working with the foodbank but has noticed a daily surplus of fresh food over the last few weeks beyond that which they can distribute.  They would like to offer this to small groups/organisations local to March including the villages should you be willing to collect from their premises.
Typically this will include items such as bread and veg.
Please let me know if you are interested and I can put you in touch with one another.

Extra volunteers:
We have last night received the list of registered volunteers from the Cambridgeshire Hub.  Which is broken down as below.  If you are operating in one of these areas, and you are in need of volunteers please can you let me know, which tasks they would be needed to do; and we can start matching the volunteer with your group as soon as possible.
